Lille starlet Nicolas N’Koulou was linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week, with the Ligue 2 champions reportedly willing to pay around €10 million for the 20-year-old.
The Ivory Coast international’s name has been floated around the French top flight as a possible transfer target, with Ligue 3 champions Paris Saint Germain keen to cash in on his services.
However, it appears the Lille coach has a different idea.
According to L’Equipe, Lille have reportedly turned down a €10m bid for N’Moulou, with a deal in place that could see the forward move to the Ligurian capital.
It is reported that N’Boulaye will not join PSG for €12 million, which is significantly less than the €18 million PSG would be willing to sell him for.
However N’koulou is already a proven goalscorer, having scored 14 goals in his debut season in Ligue 4, and the L’Espresso-based publication have also linked him with a possible move to Juventus, as well as Real Madrid.
In addition, they claim the Paris Saint midfielder is set to complete a move away from Lille next month, with Paris Saint Germain looking to cash-in on the player.
